I love getting a chance to try amazing products and apps before any of you spend your hard earned money on them. I recently had the opportunity to try one myself — LoopPay! This is amazing because you can use your phone to pay for your purchases!
So, how is this different than another app you may have heard about? Well, this one is redeemable at more locations. Not only that, but you can load your gift cards, Driver’s License and more – right onto your app!
It is so simple to use. First, download the app (for free). You will need to sign up by first entering your email address. Next, fill out all of the contact information. Answer all of the additional questions. You will need to enter your bday and last four digits of your SSN for verification purposes (the DOB and SSN are NOT retained).
Once you are signed up, they will send you an activation token via email. You will need to enter that. Next, follow the steps of the setup wizard. It will ask you about the KeyFob and you can say you do not have one and proceed to the next steps.
Now, add all of your debit and credit cards and even your Driver’s License to your account. Don’t worry – it is all encrypted and requires a different password than your phone to pay.
The additional feature I loved was being able to add all of my gift cards. I’ve got so many of them that I forget about them. Now, I load them onto my Loop Pay wallet, add the balance (so I know how much is remaining on them) and don’t have to cart them with me. Or, worse yet – remember that I have a gift card — at home.
We’ve been using this for a while now. I finally was able to use up those gift cards which had piled up in my desk! It was also great when I needed a quick item to just pay right at the register with my phone. You should see the looks people give me and the questions. I’m not even sure how many people I’ve probably referred to LoopPay just by using it in the store! LOL!!!
What is different about this app are the products they sell to help make it simpler to use the app!
They actually sell a KeyFob, which links to the card of your choice, so you can use that to pay right at the register instead! So great when you run into the store for something, just take your keys with you and you can pay without pulling out your phone, cash or card! The KeyFob retails for $29.95.
The LoopPay CardCase is also a really awesome product! This includes a card reader on the back of your phone. You can simply pay with your phone or just slide off the LoopPay Card and hand it to your server and pay for your meal! You can even carry your ID and a backup card right in your case!! This retails for $49.95. You can even purchase only the card for $39.95.
They even have a LoopPay Charge Case. This does just as the title suggests, helps charge your phone! Right now, they only offer this for the iPhone 5 or 5s, so make sure you keep that in mind before you order it. We actually tested this product out ourselves and it worked just like the site says it would. Kept our phone charged longer – and we still had the ease of paying with our phone right at the register!
If you’ve got a hard to buy for person on your list who LOVES their iPhone, you should check out one of these products. What a unique gift idea!!!!
